    Didn't Tacoma get voted one of the top places to raise a family recently?

    I haven't found anywhere so far that wasn't gorgeous up here..but cost of living is a real factor isn't it. Cannot find anything decent for less than 200K unless its a manufactured home. Groceries and good much higher here than Texas. Property valus/taxes are unreal, so I doubt we can afford to buy land and keep it once we've retired. Guess we just started too late...LOL!. We will probably end up in a senior trailer park to save on expenses...LOL..but sightseeing trips will make that worthwhile.

    The forests, mountains and water are so calming to me as well...love it here overall.

    I live in bellingham...I think for me it is the best washington city. not too big, not too small, a lot of young people and events/music.
    hi there was wondering if u could give me an idea of the job opportunities in bellingham. I am a RN with 9+ years in acute hospital setting experience. Could u give me an idea of the salary in ur area and job openings. Also what is the patient staff ratios and job satisfaction. I was also interested in the real estate property costs and cost of living. Thanks

    Whatcom county is beautiful. Even more beautiful is Skagit County, and the city of Mount Vernon received the "Best Small Town to Live In" award.

    no..not Tacoma. It's been voted one of the most stressful cities in the USA. With good reason....traffic and crime are very bad here.

    I came from OK to WA...I know what you mean about loving the water and mountains, both of which are lacking in TX and OK.

    Hi popy05. There are 2 Washington's in the USA. There is the state of Washington on the west coast of USA. There is a city called Washington DC on the east coast of USA. They are completely different. I live in the state of Washington on the west coast of USA. I did visit Washington DC for a vacation many years ago. I have heard that Washington DC on the east coast has a very high crime rate and that it is very expensive to live in Washington DC.Good luck

    I think the rent for a 1 bedroom apartment in takoma park is around $700-800 a month. Try a search on your computer for takoma park, Washington DC. For renting try Rent.com. Good luck. I don't live in Washington DC so I really don't know much about the area.

    Olympia, gets my vote. so much to do, minutes from the sound, close to ocean and mountains. has a small town feel
    Is Tumwater considered a suburb of Olympia? Anyway, my wife & I will be moving to Tumwater the end of March 2006 [all the way from Central Texas].

    i love seattle! its expensive to live, but there is diversity and being a nurse is all about diversity. there is always is a lot to do around here. seattle is like a typical city so obviously there will be traffic and smog etc. however, i think if your a city person and enjoy new experiences then seattle i would say is a great place to enjoy diversity.
